A Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Holy Spirit, grant me to know you in your fullness:

  • the ocean of your love
  • the wellspring of your joy
  • the river of your peace
  • the quiet waters of your patience
  • the streams of your kindness
  • the floods of your goodness
  • the waves of your faithfulness
  • the dew of your gentleness
  • the channel of your self-control

Against such things there is no limit.

  1. Can we ever know His fullness? Oceans and waves and floods are apt words to suggest the expansiveness of the Holy Spirit. Such an outpouring of good things to those who open wide their hearts!

  2. Another short prayer is, "More, Lord, more!"
